KenshooAnywhereiPhoneUsers of Kenshoo Anywhere, the iOS application from Kenshoo, a Facebook Marketing Partner, can now manage and adjust ad campaigns on the social network directly via their mobile devices.

Kenshoo announced an update to its app Monday, giving users the capability to react to news and events by viewing and adjusting their campaigns via their iOS devices. Users can pause and activate campaigns, as well as setting custom date ranges. The company said the update also added improved navigation of profile and campaign names and date ranges.

Prior to the update, Kenshoo Anywhere only offered users custom reporting dashboards to view performance reports across various digital marketing assets and metrics.

Kenshoo senior vice president of product Will Martin-Gill said in a release announcing the app update:

Brands and agencies have long sought the ability to optimize their campaigns in conjunction with changes in the competitive landscape and other real-time events, something that was nearly impossible to do without having access to their program at all times. The updated Kenshoo Anywhere app gives marketers the ability to react to news and events as they happen and adjust their campaigns accordingly. This flexibility ensures that Kenshoo clients can instantly capitalize on opportunities as they emerge.

Nominations for Inaugural FbStart Apps of the Year Due March 9

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

FbStartAppsOfTheYear650Nominations are due at midnight PST March 9 for the first-ever FbStart Apps of the Year awards, recognizing the most successful applications to come out of Facebook’s FbStart program.

Facebook announced the launch of FbStart at its 2014 F8 global developer conference, saying that fledgling developers could apply for eligibility for free products and services (up to $30,000 at the time).

Product marketing manager Kevin Prior outlined the criteria by which apps will be judged in a post on the Facebook developer blog:

  • Growth and engagement: Is the app growing quickly? Has the app entered new markets, or done a good job retaining new users? Does the app demonstrate potential for growth?
  • Experience and design: Is the design optimized for the best user experience? Does it have a streamlined look and feel?
  • Efficiency at scale: How does the app use Facebook or other third-party tools to make app development and iteration efficient?
  • Leveraging Facebook Platform: Are Facebook and/or Parse products an integral part of the app? Do they improve any of the above three areas?

Prior also detailed the five awards that will be given out at this year’s F8, set for March 25 and 26 at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco:

  • FbStart App of the Year (one winner): Overall winner based on the criteria above. $50,000 cash prize, $25,000 in Facebook ad credit and a one-on-one mentorship session with one of the judges from our panel.
  • Regional Apps of the Year (three winners): The best apps from the four global regions (Asia-Pacific, Europe/Middle East/Africa, Latin America and North America), excluding the App of the Year’s region. $5,000 cash prize and $5,000 in Facebook ad credit each.
  • Social Good App of the Year (one winner): An app that seeks to solve community needs or promote social issues. $5,000 cash prize and $5,000 in Facebook ad credit.

Prior said in introducing the FbStart Apps of the Year awards:

After launching FbStart last year, we’ve accepted thousands of mobile apps into the program and helped these developers grow their startups by offering crucial tools like ad credits, analytics, email marketing, device testing and credit-card processing. Today, we are announcing FbStart Apps of the Year, our inaugural awards program to recognize the most successful apps among our members.

We will reach out directly to members with instructions on how to nominate their apps for the awards, and we will announce the winners at F8 in March. We will be awarding a grand prize of $50,000 and $25,000 in Facebook ad credit to the FbStart App of the Year. The awards will be judged by a panel of experts in mobile development who come from Facebook and the startup community.

After receiving instructions, startups in the program can nominate their apps for the awards until March 9 at midnight PST. Apps must be integrated with Facebook Platform or use Parse to be eligible. Startups not yet in FbStart can apply to be a member by March 7 in order to be considered for the awards. Before submitting, please read our official rules.
